Another Neglected Hobby is an electronic music project of Mark Cotton. This release, like its predecessor Elements One: Beeswax and Rust, was inspired by revisiting a series of paintings Mark created using beeswax and rust on canvas instead of traditional paints. The sound is a mixture of drone and rhythmic elements, layered patterns and filtered recordings, shifting from simple, repetitive note patterns to tribal drums and pulsing syncopation. favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: longform, ambient, experimental, soundscape
"Eccentrica" is a collection of interesting mystified tracks. It was originally released as a cdr on Fork and Spoon Records, but because of technical difficulties, we had to discontinue it there.

Elements One: Beeswax and Rust Beeswax and rust both occur in nature, although through very different processes. Both are produced from other materials; beeswax from a combination of chemicals processed and secreted by honey bees and rust from the oxidation of iron in the presence of water or moisture in the air. And while both beeswax and rust occur in nature with no help from man, the presence and actions of man can have an impact on the production of both.
